Vibrating Separator For Sweetener Powder From Russell Finex

Industrial bulk food powder separator grades multiple fractions of food and beverage sweetener

by Darren Ralphs | Tuesday 13 February 2018

Sweeteners form an integral part of global food and beverage production. Sweeteners can be manufactured from a range of natural products, most commonly fruit, honey or corn, and are added to a range of processed foods. Such food additives are controlled by food safety regulations, to ensure the quality of processed foods. Therefore, the quality and consistency of food additives is important, to ensure every batch can be trusted to meet strict weights and measures regulations. Because of this, the higher the quality and consistency of a sweetener, the greater its value.

In a Russell Finex demonstration video you can view a high fructose corn syrup sweetener powder being graded using the Finex Separator™. This industrial powder grading sieve provides the perfect solution for separating sweetener powder. Two fractions of product are separated in one continuous operation, then packaged for use in various food and beverage applications, depending on the desired cut. This type of grading separation for food ingredients can also be used for removing oversize contamination, dewatering wet material, and de-dusting.

The Finex Separator™ can provide up to five accurate fractions of product, and delivers significantly higher throughput than conventional round separators. This vibratory grading sieve is operator friendly, with patented rubber suspension providing lower noise levels, and hygienic panwork is available to meet the sanitary needs of the food and beverage industry. The units can also be fully enclosed, to not only protect operators from potentially harmful dust and fumes, but also further protect the product from contamination.

Established in 1934, Russell Finex has developed a wide range of vibratory separators, check-screeners and self-cleaning inline filters for many different processes within the food and beverage industry. With a customer base including Nestlé, Mondelēz, Unilever and Mars, the company understands the needs of the EC Official Controls of Foodstuffs Directive and the UK Food Safety Act and GMP, as well as FDA and USDA requirements.
